A lot of people hang out at the Utah Arts Festival — but nobody does it like this.
The aerial dance troupe Bandaloop, whose members suspend from climbing ropes to perform dynamic choreography on the vertical faces of buildings, will make its second appearance at the Utah Arts Festival in June, festival organizers announced today.
Bandaloop will perform on the curved glass facade of the Salt Lake City Library’s main branch, at 6 and 8 p.m. each night during the festival.
The troupe — based in Oakland, Calif., and under the artistic direction of Amelia Rudolph — made a spectacular showing at the 2005 festival, wowing audiences and providing fresh perspective on the then-2-year-old library building.
The Utah Arts Festival runs June 20-23 at Library Square.
